Introduction Days

In your first days in Gothenburg, there will be lots to do and absorb. This page provides information about activities for newly arrived students that are held at the start of the semester. The University Welcome Programme, social activities arranged by student buddies and student associations. There is also quite a lot of administrative tasks you need to take care of as a new student.

Welcome Programme

The International Student Welcome Programme is held at the beginning of each semester. The programme of events and activities provides international students with practical information about the University and living in Gothenburg. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet other international students and Student Buddies from all over the world.

Faculty organised welcome activities

Some faculties at the University also arrange activities for their students at the start of the semester. Individual programmes might also arrange orientation or introduction events. They will contact you via e-mail if that is the case.

Social events

The Student Buddies organise plenty of activities both at the start and throughout the semester in order to help international students settle in and meet fellow students. You can contact them if you need more information about student life in Gothenburg or if you want to know more about the different activities arranged for you.

Unimeet Gothenburg events

These events aim to welcome all new international students to the city of Gothenburg. They are designed to make you discover and experience the city while getting to know other students. Unimeet Gothenburg is a collaboration between the University of Gothenburg, Chalmers and the Trade and Industry Group at Göteborg & Co.
